Whalehead Beach house description
What's a perfect vacation all about? RELAXATION, family, friends and did we say RELAXATION? Di-SEA-ti Downtime is an immaculate 9 bedroom, semi-oceanfront, 'south-seas' meticulously decorated, spectacular home. Truly, it will 'take you away' the moment you set foot in the door...
Enjoy the views on one of the many decks; watch the porpoise play in the Atlantic, watch the sunrise or sunset, see the kids in the pool or playing volleyball or observe the Corolla lighthouse light up the evening. Stargazing is a must...who can find the Big Dipper?
Enjoy the spacious, open kitchen with it's upgraded appliances and two granite prep islands...perfect for group cooking. The elevator provides easy grocery unloading and is quite helpful with the elderly folks in the group. Two huge dining tables in the adjacent great room, plus a 'breakfast bar' in the kitchen, easily accommodate all of the guests wanting to enjoy a meal together. Previous guests say it's the best equipped kitchen of any home they've stayed in.
Family competitions? The 'game is on' in the large game room, with pool table, large screen TV and kitchenette. The pool w/kiddie pool, hot tub, private volleyball court, basketball hoop and bar-be-que are only steps away. Outdoor BOSE speakers help fill the air with your favorite tunes.
Want some quiet time? This immense home is perfect for 'getting away'. Each of the 8 master suites have a private bath and TV; several have private decks. The smaller kids, of course, will enjoy their week long 'slumber party' in the bunk bedroom!
Enjoy a quiet stroll along the clean, wide, white sand beach accessed from the walkway just a short distance away (approx 1-2 minute walk). Beach combing can bring some real treasures...seahorses and sand dollars have been found! Take a bike ride, rent a canoe, go surfing or play 18 holes. Visit the nearby Whalehead Club on the Currituck Sound for an exquisite sunset photo op. Rent a Jeep and drive along the nearby 'four wheel drive' beach to see the wild ponies and visit Penny's Hill for some 'sand-dune surfing'.
Quaint shopping abounds in both Duck and Corolla. TRY to get a reservation at the Blue Point Grill, written up in Gourmet magazine...the food is unbelievable! The spa at the Sanderling is top notch!
There's so much to do or NOT do....it's YOUR vacation! Come RELAX at DiSEAti Downtime.

ReviewsWrite a review
This was our second time staying at this house. LOVED IT! We had 5 families of long time friends. Kids (all mostly college age) had a great time. It's a great house for a large group. We had our volleyball tournment every night. Beach access is close and pool used all day long. House was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. We loved the two big dining tables. We were all able to sit and eat together. All the bedrooms were comfortable. We loved that there were different living areas to spread out. Kids loved the pool table and having their own hang out area. Oh, can't forget the elevator. Kids loved that because they would have been the ones carrying the groceries to the top floor! Great area to go for long walks and shopping near by. Not one complaint and I know we will be returning again! Don't pass this house up.

House Was As Feature
House Was As Feature
This house had almost everything we could ask for. It was decorated nicely, kitchen was well stocked, and the house and pool area were very clean. We had a nice view of the ocean even though we were not the first house on the beach. Got some beautiful pictures of sunrise.This is the first time we rented a home in the Outer Banks through VRBO. We had no problem with the owner or the realtor that managed it for him answering any questions we had. I would have given this home a 5 star (excellent) except for the fact that the amenities include "Linens" Bed linens were included but towels were not. I did not even look for whether towels were included because when linens were included in other house rentals (for the last 10 years) towels were always included. I was a little upset but we brought our own. Luckily, I saw it on the email letting us know about checking in. What we were really upset about was the quality of the bed linens provided. They were so small that I actually thought they gave me double sheets instead of queen. We managed to get them on the bed but by the middle of the night they popped off. The time sheet was so small that it wouldn't stay tucked in. This was very frustrating and did not make for a good night's sleep. If we were to consider this house again, we would definitely bring our own sheets. I really am sorry to have to give this house a 4 star because other then the "linen" problem, we were happy.
